  1. I cannot imagine why parents spend so much money to treat diaper rash when a much cheaper alternative is available to them. You simply give the baby a bath with some baking soda in the water. I am not sure why this works, but it does. The only thing to remember is to NOT use this when there are open sores. Try this when you first notice the redness and you will soon have no more problems with diaper rash.
